Anwar lived in a small village with his wife, children, and parents. “Before knowing Jesus, I abused alcohol and drugs. While under the influence, I often fought with people. Many times I was taken to the police station. I also spent many nights sleeping on roads and in the jungle,” he recounted to Biglife.
His restless heart could find no peace. “I used to wake up at nights with nightmares and wondered what was happening to me. Eventually, many of my friends died due to drug use. Some of them have lost their minds and some are still in rehab centers,” he says.
But God had a rescue plan in mind for Anwar, and sent a Christian worker to his door who introduced him to Jesus. “He regularly prayed for me and I began to realize that only Jesus could deliver me from my addictions,” he relates.
The power of God’s Word and the Spirit kindled faith in his heart to believe in Jesus. “I surrendered my life to him and now I am totally changed. I have not touched alcohol or drugs and I no longer have nightmares,” he says.
“I am really thankful to the Lord for rescuing me. Today, my family and I are sharing Jesus with others in our area. I thank God for His grace to me.”
